The mandatory five-day quarantine upon arriving in Bali is not something foreign tourists can play around with, the province’s COVID-19 Task Force has warned, with violators subject to possible deportation. 

I Made Rentin, who heads Bali COVID-19 Task Force, said over the weekend that foreign tourists visiting Bali will be strictly monitored during the quarantine period. 

“There will be 24 hours of strict monitoring at the quarantine hotels,” Rentin said. 

“Every hotel has a duty to form a local task force commanded by the hotel’s chief security. That’s the person who’s going to coordinate with the military and police in the area, who will conduct the 24-hour monitoring.”

Meanwhile, should any foreign tourists violate the rules or escape quarantine, they would be subject to possible deportation. 

“The governor has firmly announced, [in the case of] foreign nationals violating health protocols, violating rules, [they will be] deported,” Rentin said.
